    Liner Corners Pulling out ..

    My 20*40 In Ground liner pool is about 3 years old and I noticed two corners are pulling out of the track. (Bead Liner) It has been very hot in Michigan the last week so I figured it would be a no brainer to put the liner back in. I can get the bead back in the corners but it just keeps coming back out. Is there a trick ? The concrete has tight radius corners but the liner track uses two 45 degree angles in the corner.

    After my pool was installed, my liner pulled out and the pool builder used some wedges to help hold it in. They are maybe an inch wide and look like a small wedge. My liner has not pulled out any more. Maybe a pool store would have something like that. I have probaly not been a big help but just thought i would share my experience.

    Some people use pennies to wedge the bead into the track.

    You can buy screen beading that you use for holding screens in doors and windows in rolls at Lowe's or Home Depot. I have not had to personally use this, but was told that if my liner didn't hold in the track, that this would help keep it in place. Hope this helps!

    I believe the product is called "Bead Lock" - use warm water (not boiling) to soften the liner so you can stretch it back into place.

    Rubber kitchen gloves are pretty handy to gently stretch the liner back into the coping.
